Although I am not against Islam but the TRUTH about the extreme practice in Islam must be exposed.

Let start with the so-called peaceful culture in the Muslim Uyghur or their Kurdish ancestry gene.

TODAY in NORTHERN IRAQ where the Kurdish are residing and why both the mainstream Iraqi and Turkish treated them like PARIAH, the descendant of the Saladin, the greatest leader of the Ottoman Empire.

Teenage girl was STONED to DEATH for loving the wrong boy

A 17-year-old girl was stoned to death in Iraq because she LOVED a teenage boy of the wrong religion.

As a horrifying video of the stoning went out on the Internet, the British arm of Amnesty International condemned the death of Du'a Khalil Aswad as "an abhorrent murder" and demanded that her killers be brought to justice.

Reports from Iraq said a local security force witnessed the incident, but did nothing to try to stop it. Now her boyfriend is in hiding in fear for his life.

Miss Aswad, a member of a minority Kurdish religious group called Yezidi, was condemned to death as an "honour killing" by other men in her family and hardline religious leaders because of her relationship with the Sunni Muslim boy.

The teenager was dragged outside by 8 or 9 men and stoned for half an hour until she died. Her boyfriend is now in hiding in fear for his life

They said she had shamed herself and her family when she failed to return home one night. Some reports suggested she had converted to Islam to be closer to her boyfriend.

Miss Aswad had taken shelter in the house of a Yezidi tribal leader in Bashika, a predominantly Kurdish town near the northern capital, Mosul.

A large crowd watched as eight or nine men stormed the house and dragged Miss Aswad into the street. There they hurled stones at her for half an hour until she was dead.

The stoning happened last month, but only came to light yesterday with the release of the Internet video.

It is feared her death has already triggered a retaliatory attack. Last week 23 Yezidi workmen were forced off a bus travelling from Mosulto Bashika by a group of Sunni gunmen and summarily shot dead.

An Amnesty International spokesman in London said they receive frequent reports of honour crimes from Iraq ? particularly in the predominantly Kurdish north.

Most victims are women and girls who are considered by male relatives to have shamed their families by immoral behaviour.

Kurdish authorities have introduced reforms outlawing honour killings, but have failed to investigate them or prosecute suspects, added the Amnesty spokesman.

Kate Allen, the organisation?s UK director, said: "This young girl?s murder is truly abhorrent and her killers must be brought to justice.

"Unless the authorities respond vigorously to this and any other reports of crimes in the name of 'honour', we must fear for the future of women in Iraq."

Warning! Very Graphic!

This barbaric form of execution is on the rise, and campaigners are calling on the UN to act

Special report: The punishment was death by stoning. The crime? Having a mobile phone
EMMA BATHA Sunday 29 September 2013

Two months ago, a young mother of two was STONED to DEATH by her relatives on the ORDER of a tribal Islamic court in Pakistan. Her crime: POSSESSION of a mobile phone.

Arifa Bibi's uncle, cousins and others hurled stones and bricks at her until she died, according to media reports. She was buried in a desert far from her village. It's unlikely anyone was arrested. Her case is not unique. Stoning is LEGAL or practised in at least 15 countries or regions. And campaigners fear this barbaric form of execution may be on the rise, particularly in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Women's rights activists have launched an international campaign for a ban on stoning, which is mostly inflicted on women accused of adultery. They are using Twitter and other social media to put pressure on the United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, to denounce the practice.

"Stoning is a cruel and hideous punishment. It is a form of torturing someone to death," said Naureen Shameem of the international rights group Women Living Under Muslim Laws. "It is one of the most brutal forms of violence perpetrated against women in order to control and punish their sexuality and basic freedoms."

She said activists will also push the UN to adopt a resolution on stoning similar to the one passed last year on eradicating female genital mutilation – another form of violence against women often justified on religious and cultural grounds.

Stoning is not legal in most Muslim countries and there is no mention of it in the Koran. But supporters ARGUE that it is LEGITIMISED by the Hadith – the ACTS and SAYINGS of the Prophet Mohamed. Stoning is set out as a specific punishment for adultery under several interpretations of sharia or Islamic law. In some instances, even a woman saying she has been raped can be considered an admission to the crime of zina (sex outside marriage).

In one case cited by Shameem, a 13-year-old Somali girl, Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow, was buried up to her neck and stoned by 50 men in front of 1,000 people at a stadium in Kismayu in 2008. Her father told Amnesty International she had been raped by three men but was accused of adultery when she tried to report the rape to the al-Shabaab militia in control of the city.

Extrajudicial terror

Iran has the world's highest rate of execution by stoning. No one knows how many people have been stoned but at least 11 people are in prison under sentence of stoning, according to an Iranian human rights lawyer, Shadi Sadr.

Sadr, who has represented five people sentenced to stoning, said Iran carried out stonings in secret in prisons, in the desert or very early in the morning in cemeteries. "Pressure from outside Iran always helps. The Islamic Republic pretends that they don't care about their reputation, but they do care a lot," added Sadr, who lives in exile in Britain.

In 2010, the case of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, a woman sentenced to death by stoning for alleged adultery, caused international outcry. The authorities have suspended her sentence but she remains in prison. Officials withdrew stoning from a new draft penal code last year, but have since reinserted it.

Stoning is also a legal punishment for adultery in Mauritania, a third of Nigeria's 36 states, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen.

In some countries, such as Mauritania and Qatar, stoning has never been used although it remains legal. However, in other countries, such as Afghanistan and Iraq, stoning is not legal but tribal leaders, militants and others carry it out extrajudicially. "In Afghanistan, warlords are manipulating religion to terrorise the population for their own political ends. Stoning is one way of doing that," said Shameem, a human rights lawyer who is co-ordinating the Stop Stoning Women campaign.

Origins

Stoning has been used as a form of community justice throughout history in various religious and cultural traditions, many pre-dating Islam. Unlike beheading, which is performed by a single executioner, stoning is carried out by a group.

The practice has been documented among the Ancient Greeks to punish people judged to be prostitutes, adulterers or murderers. It is also mentioned in the Jewish Torah, the first five books of the Bible, and the Talmud. Today, it is predominantly associated with Muslim culture. However, clerics are deeply divided. Supporters of stoning say the Hadith depicts the Prophet as occasionally ordering stoning in cases of extramarital sex.

But some scholars say these acts and sayings – recorded several hundred years after the Prophet's death – have been misinterpreted. Others argue that the Prophet was simply following prevailing customs and Jewish law. Modern laws sanctioning stoning as a punishment for adultery emerged with the revival of political Islam in the late 20th and early 21st century.

Discrimination

Campaigners say women are more likely to be convicted of adultery than men because discriminatory laws and customs penalise women more for extramarital sex.

If a man is unhappy with his wife he can – depending on the country – divorce, take other wives or marry another woman temporarily. A woman has few options. She can divorce only in certain circumstances and risks losing custody of her children. Men accused of adultery are also more likely to have the means to hire lawyers, and their greater physical freedom makes it easier for them to flee in situations where they risk extrajudicial stoning.

Activists say trials are often unfair. Convictions are frequently based on confessions made under duress. As adultery is difficult to prove, judges in Iran can also convict on the basis of gut feeling rather than evidence.

Even the manner of stoning is loaded against women. People sentenced to stoning in Iran are partially buried. If they can escape they are spared. But women are customarily buried up to their chests while men are only buried up to their waists.

Stoning contravenes a host of UN treaties including the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which states that no one should be subjected to torture, or cruel or inhuman punishment. The treaty, which Iran and Pakistan have signed, allows countries to execute people only for "the most serious crimes".

Many prominent Muslim clerics have spoken in support of a ban on stoning, deeming it un-Islamic and antithetical to the Koran's emphasis on repentance and compassion. Shameem said stoning mostly happened in conflict or post-conflict areas where politicians, warlords and militants exploit people's religious beliefs as they jockey for power. Mali saw its first case last year after Islamist militants took control of the north of the country. It is not clear why, in Bibi's case, the tribal court should have justified stoning as a punishment for owning a mobile phone. Shameem said stoning and the threat of stoning was being used "to control women, constrain their freedoms, and police their sexuality".

The threat of stoning has even happened in Tunisia, a relatively liberal country with no history of stoning. This year, the head of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice in Tunisia called for a teenage activist to be stoned to death for posting nude protest images of herself online.

Campaigners plan to present an online petition to Mr Ban and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights on 25 November, International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.(Thomson Reuters Foundation)

This is from Wiki...

Due to the ISLAMIC LAWS on rape REQUIRING four MALE EYE WITNESSES (What are these witnesses doing, watching a LIVE PORNOGRAPHIC ACT since they did not respond to the hideous cat of RAPING))before guilt can be ascertained, many rape victims end up being CHARGED with 'ADULTERY.' As was the case for 13-year-old Aisha Ibrahim Dhuhulow in Somalia[3] who in October of 2008 was buried up to her neck and stoned to death in front of more than 1,000 people in a football stadium. She was the VICTIM of gang-rape. Another Somalian female who gave birth to a stillborn child, was also stoned to death in front of a crowd of 200 in November (one of at least four Somalians to be stoned for adultery in 2009).[4] Her boyfriend received 100 lashes. Incidents of stoning have also been reported in Iraq and Pakistan, and forms a part of Afghan, Iranian, Nigerian, Indonesian, Sudanese, Saudi Arabian, and United Arab Emirate law.[5] While there are some who may disagree, it is very much an accepted part of Islam for many, if not the majority, of Muslims. We find in an August 2009 Pew survey[6] that 83% of Pakistanis believe that adulterers should be stoned. In another survey carried out in 'moderate' Indonesia (at 220 million, its the world's most populated Muslim country) it found that "almost half the respondents back stoning as a punishment for adulterers."[7]

There is a lot of distortions in the Hadith and it should not be taken seriously for example the Hadith say Prophet Mohammeds sweat use to smell like perfume which is not true .The Hadith is not the Quran and the Uyghur Muslims have been mainly peaceful but lately they have resorted to violence because the Chinese government has been driving them off their land and creating jobs only for the Han Chinese .The Turkish government has described Chinas heavy handed crackdown on the Uyghurs as genocide .

Next many Americans who promoted the so-called DEMOCRACY should open their eyes and ask this question.

Is USA really interested in PROMOTING Democracy or they merely wanted CONTROL?
Take the case of Malaysia, the radical in the opposition Islamic Party PAS will tabled a "Hudud Bill" (Islamic Law) that infringed on the Constitutional Rights of all Malaysian, and the ruling Malay Muslim Party UMNO says that they have not rejected the IDEA.

The right and freedom of religion is purely enshrined in the Constitution Act in Malaysia, why does the Muslim who merely enjoyed a simple majority wanted to impose their ISLAMIC WILL on the other races or non believers and attempt to alter the constitution. UMNO should have stood up and says NO!

And USA Obama signed a Comprehensive Partnership with a regime that make themselves the ruler without the popular vote.

What is a COMPREHENSIVE partnership, an agreement of expediency meaning you touch my backside and I touch yours.

IMO That is why OBAMA should have stay at home and ASIA will be more peaceful. USA is not helpful and NOT part of the solution.

In China, we the non believer of Islam see a GODLESS government meaning without an official religion integrating her MUSLIM population into a WELL BEHAVED society. If they break the law even during RAMADAN stay away from the Mosques.

When the order came directly from the horse mouth and he is the Prophet, stop making EXCUSES. That is the extremity of ISLAM and as I ask before, "IS THERE A PUNISHMENT IN YOUR HUDUD LAW ON LYING? ISN'T IT A SIN?" in your Qu'ran to lie.

I have NO TIME for LIARS and I will print more and more the articles on the extremity of religions. Mostly MAN MAKE LAW esp. in ISLAM!

Objective: To control the people and suppress their right esp. the weaker sex - women

Where is East Turkestan?

In Northern Iraq?

Never heard of the place. It must be swarming with Islamist extremists?

The Ugyhurs are aliens in Xinjiang. Their ancestors invaded a land that does not belong to them in the first place. Now they better behave themselves or they may be disappeared for good like all separatists in many countries e.g. Hawaii Independent Seekers went missing after routine 4 am visit.

Even the Turks considered them Uyhur or Kirdish aliens?

Nothing wrong with the nickname? No wonder Taliban like you hated the Chinese!
